xubuntu won't start on installation reboot

Asked by Hakeem on 2008-05-24

I have an old computer. It has a 4GB hard drive and 128 RAM. And it's running Windows ME. And this is the I tried Ubuntu. I downloaded the .iso file, burned it to a CD-R then I started the installation and said I would do the complete installation. It installed and said i should reboot so xubuntu can load, but when I rebooted the computer booted ME instead, so I changed the boot order with the cd drive first and it still didn't work then I tried every option the cd gave me still nothing, so how do I get xubuntu to load on restart.

Upon restarting, you should be provided with a boot menu called GRUB. From here, you will be able to select the operating system you want to run. Did you choose to completely overwrite Windows ME, or to dual-boot?

The problem is the GRUB boot menu never came up it just goes straight to ME

Did u burn the iso as an image, or just as the content?
Can you browse the CD from ME?

Can you test de CDR on another machine?
